TOP 10 EARLY SPRING GARDEN PLANNING TIPS FROM WHITE FLOWER FARM

(1) Look at the key features and overall outlines of your garden, and think about new planting areas, pathways, or specimen trees or shrubs that could enhance it.

(2) Peruse garden catalogues, magazines, and books for ideas and inspiration. Also visit gardens and parks -- take along a camera.

(3) Order your favorite new varieties and specimen plants. Also, order vegetable starts and seeds for your kitchen garden.

(4) Plan your patio garden by considering new plant combinations or veggies. Buy decorative pottery, fertilizer and other supplies now to save time in spring.

(5) Review your garden tools -- this is the time to clean and sharpen them. Replace worn out gloves and get a garden tote bag to keep items organized and handy.

(6) Purchase tuberous Begonias for March planting. We're partial to the world-famous Blackmore and Langdon varieties from England and the fragrant
 Scentiment(r) series from California.

(7) Start a garden journal with notes and photos as your garden progresses through each season. Be sure to label the photos for easy planning next winter.

(8) Shop for new garden structures such as trellises, pergolas, and benches.

(9) Look for pre-planned garden designs that fit your sun and shade areas.

(10) Learn from other people's gardens -- if you like a particular spring-blooming bulb or plant, ask about it. It may grow well for you, too.
